Canyon de Chelly is entirely privately owned. You will need to hire a native guide to take you into the canyon. I highly recommend you do that. The sights are worth the price.
I get asked a lot about the equipment I use for my picture taking. For the most part I shoot with a Nikon D90, a Nikon D5200 with various lenses ranging from fish-eye to 1000mm.
I will write about those as I post pictures of them in use.
Just to confuse matters, the picture above was taken with a Sony SLT A77, which I really like because the camera is always in “LIVE MODE”. It also has a pull out tilt/swivel view finder that really comes in handy.
